JQI at Maryland Day 2015

Crowds brave cold temperatures to see cool physics

Despite cold weather and cloudy skies, UMD's annual Maryland Day (April 25, 2015) attracted thousands of visitors eager to learn about the university. The JQI was again located on the lawn outside the Physics Building, and provided fun examples and analogs of quantum topics with demonstrations of parametric down conversion, wave-particle duality, charged dust traps, and the Meissner effect. The JQI thanks all of our volunteers for their hard work in making this day possible!
